MT-Check (also called: Position Analyzer): Powerful and clever solution to measure the machine's 3D positioning and straightness errors.
The MT-Check / Position Analyzer system provides a simple but powerful principle to measure the machine’s 3D positioning and straightness errors according to ISO 230 in a clever way. Geometric deviations are determined by measuring a calibrated ball beam. The measurements are performed by our patented and self-centering wireless (Trinity) or wired (Triton) probe that measures X, Y and Z coordinates simultaneously. The probe has a large range, enabling a simple setup without alignment procedures. A ball beam measurement only takes several minutes and shows directly the positioning accuracy and both straightness deviations.
The ball beam is a reference object containing 22 mm diameter precision balls. It can be placed axis parallel on the workpiece table without making any other fine adjustments. The relative position of the ball centre points is calibrated in X, Y and Z.
The common beam material is Silicon Carbide. Depending on the respective application, the number and spacing of the precision balls can be chosen. The beam balls are distributed such, that the machine’s positioning accuracy can be evaluated in 3D at all times.
Unique strengths / advantages of our Position Analyzer system:
